Los Angeles, Calif. -- On Saturday, September 18, LMU Athletics will hold its annual Athletics Garage Sale at the 51st Annual LMU Alumni BBQ. Helping to raise funds for individual teams, the Garage Sale is a great connection between the school's loyal alumni and fan base and the athletic department, which is and important part of the department's goal of Building Champions.

This fall's Garage Sale will offer alumni and fans of LMU Athletics the chance to purchase official team jerseys, shirts, shorts, travel bags, and other equipment that was used by LMU's sports teams. All proceeds from the sale of items will go to directly benefit the participating teams to help them succeed in their seasons.

Through the Garage Sale, teams are able to turn old jerseys and team wear into new funding that can give them an immediate benefit. Participating teams include men and women's basketball, soccer, tennis, crew, volleyball, and more.

Held each September, the Alumni BBQ is a central opportunity for LMU graduates of all ages to return to campus for a day to reunite and reconnect. Held in the Sunken Gardens, over 1,500 alumni annually return to campus for the event.

Special reunions are held for individual groups among live entertainment, children's activities for the family, and cold drinks. This year's event marks the 51st anniversary of the BBQ, and admission includes a steak, chicken, or vegetarian meal.

The LMU Athletics Garage Sale will be hosted by the LionsFund Council, which began the year with the successful Third Annual LionsFund Summer Drive, raising over $75,000 to support LMU Athletics.
